    Are you obsessed with the Casey Anthony trial?

    It seems like I work with a lot of people who are obsessed with this trial, and some of them like to talk about it almost daily. I think it's kind of funny, because I am not obsessed with the trail and don't understand it.

    The obsession seems pretty common though. The public observers in the courtroom are even becoming a spectacle. I also recall tourist to Florida insisting on the bus making a stop at Anthony house... This is all very odd to me, does anybody want to try to explain their obsession?

    No obsession over the trial here.

    I don't understand it either. Just another example of how easily distracted many Americans are.

    I don't know anyone who follows, talks or cares about the trial though. And yet the media continues to shove this story down my throat every time I turn on the news.

    No. I looked it up after I heard some mentions about it, but frankly I find the media circus sickening. And I find people lining up to see it sickening. These people are entertaining themselves over a little girl's death.

    This is the sort of thing that people who used to go to lynchings a few decades ago do these days.

    I use to be fairly invested in the trial, but it's gotten way too personal and so I dropped my interest. It has been rekindled as it draws to a close. I hope Casey goes to jail, though. Disgusting!

    Most people I know are following this case and you know what reallly annoys me? I bet if this was a black family it would not be getting this much press.

    Little white girls getting killed or going missing seem to get a LOT more media press than little black kids. I have also noticed that missing female children seem to get more press over male missing children

    I am exercising a "look away" policy. The details change and blahblah lies and so-and-so says something new and... well the whole thing is disgusting.

    People get scared that the little girl was taken by a child molester, child ponography seller, or pedophile. Not as much a problem with boys. A lot of times they are killed outright.

    Easy enough to explain; they're obsessed because she has a pretty face and a nice rack.
